Morning Archie (who will have long gone by now), mrsG and Dove.  Glad the dove chicks are safe in their sky dish.  Good luck to all with exams this week.

Wind finally dropped here too - what a weekend of squalls! Glad i wasn't anywhere near a gazebo Ggirl.  

just done a GH check and all is growing.  Our wisteria is in its prime right now - must get out there with the camera before it goes past its best.

Am i too late for cake?  Comfort eating as a result of the footie.

Loved Corfu Stacey - have a fab time.  We swam in crystal clear coves, ate loads, and saw dolphins.  Also went riding - prob at the same place as OL.  Saw tortoises basking on the paths in the sun.

Lots of plants potted on, raspberry canes planted, sunny, but wind still wild.  Not looking forward to next week - Chicklet has 2 exams every day til week on Weds ....and we feel her pain

Wind has been awful here too Marion - hate wind.  Especially at this time of year when everything is growing so tall.  Fingers crossed it moves on soon.
